Does anyone know of a good software program that keeps track of Inventory for Cellphones and Computers. In our office we have cell phones and Laptops and Computers that go out into the field, I need a software program that will let me keep track of where they are. Serial numbers and things like that. Thanks in Advance

A cheap option would be to use Microsoft Access (if you have it) and just make your own database with a simple form to keep track of your inventory.
It's pretty easy to whip something up in access. You could have it running in less than a day.

That sounds like a good idea, Im not that familiar with access though. Would the wizard do that for me. Or do I need a little experience with the database?

With the new era of mobile computing, smartphones and tablets, wireless communications and cloud services, the USDA sought to take advantage of a mobilized workforce and the blurring lines between personal and corporate computing resources.

If you have access 2000 or newer the wizards should get you well on your way.
A little access experience would make things go faster. but it is easy to learn.
first you set up your table with all the fields you want to store.
then you make you form based on that table to give you a nice interface to enter the data.

You can also go with more formalized solutions, like asset trackers:

another option instead of using Access is using Excel for it. depending how extensive you want to build it. If it is just a simple database and not that large I suggest Excel otherwise as RonHoffmann  mentioned use access.
